It looks like the distant future could make its way to Texas in the near future, thanks to some unique new theme parks.
A New Jersey real estate brokerage firm is scouting out vacant retail spaces in both Houston and Dallas to set up new outposts of Legend Heroes Park, a cutting-edge, tech-based entertainment virtual reality theme park out of Singapore. It’s part of a nationwide push to bring virtual reality theme parks to all the major U.S. markets.
“Regional malls are the preferred venue, where the company can absorb vacant sub-anchors or single floors of subdivided department buildings,” R.J. Brunelli, the New Jersey-based real estate broker Legend Heroes Park has retained to find its future locations, says in a statement. “Legends Holdings will also consider vacant big-box retail spaces on the periphery of regional malls or in high-profile power centers, strip centers or freestanding highway locations.”
You can expect virtual and augmented reality, holograms, projection mapping, 4D+, video arcade games and sportainment including archery and football in the new Texas virtual reality theme parks. The immersive experience is all about next-gen delights with a new twist on arcade games and park rides.
Legend Heroes Park operator D. Legends Holdings is focusing on shuttered spaces in a number of major markets, including Houston, Dallas-Fort Worth, New York, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Boston, Denver and Chicago.
The very first Legends park opened up in Macau, China.
Many different ticket options are available at the Macau location, with individual tickets for specific attractions along with ticket packages for multiple experiences.
Vacant spaces have to fit certain requirements, including spanning 30,000 to 40,000 square feet and having 16-foot or higher ceilings — with 40 percent of the space able to accommodate rides that are 32 feet tall or higher.
Beam me up, Scotty.
